Sanders renews call for universal healthcare
The Hill

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is doubling down on his support for universal healthcare after weeks of mostly shying away from the topic on the campaign trail.

In a speech Monday at Liberty University in Virginia, Sanders blasted the nation’s healthcare system for killing “thousands of Americans” every year who can’t afford insurance.

“That is not justice, that is not morality. People should not be dying in the United States of America when they are sick,” Sanders, who is running for president, said to roaring applause at the Christian college.
